*At depths of 100 feet or more, strong currents sweep along a near vertical wall, enabling a great colony of Soft Corals such as the above to thrive. The filtration of colors causes the wall to appear white, hence the name 'Great White Wall'.  To a scuba diver, the appearance is of this wall unreal, as if you are moving through an underwater fairyland.
